WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH #162



Rapid Response for SATURDAY, June 27, 2015

RR#3

A "CONSEQUENTIAL WEEK" OF NEWS-WORTHY DEVELOPMENTS.
  • "SCOTUSCARE": I have already addressed this ;
  • CHARLESTON: THE GOOD (remarkable and holy Christian forgiveness); THE BAD (an evil and/or mentally ill person and his reckless parents and friends); and the UGLY (the politicians who are quick to make hay with crocodile tears about "racism", "gun control" and a flag. Regarding this last issue, see the always excellent commentary by Charles Krauthammer entitled "On Lowering Flag Of The Confederacy" (in The Day, www.theday.com, Saturday June 27, 2015, Opinion, pA4).
  • Gay Marriage. Many people have "gone ape" over this development, including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Regarding this last group, Law Professor Alan Dershowitz is extensively quoted in an article by Bill Hoffman on Newsmax (www.newsmax.com, Friday June 26) that is well worth reading. One of  his quotes: "No Priest is going to have to marry two men or rabbis are going to have to marry two men." This never was a religious issue.  It was and still is a cultural and ignorance issue.  And it is a Civil Law issue.  Whether it should have been decided by the Judicial Branch of Government instead of the Legislative Branch is something that I have already addressed elsewhere in Rapid Response.  And to my Bishops: review the damaging work of Pope Paul VI in his encyclical "Humana Vitae" regarding contraception, the work of many conservatives throughout the 1970's trying to kill the results of Vatican ll aborning, the fossilized stance toward divorce while tolerating the abuses of Annulment, and of course the abominable and sinful handling of the child abuse issue over decades.  Review all of this...and then do Penance at the coming Convocation on the Family scheduled for this coming October.  It is long overdue.
YES, THIS HAS BEEN A CONSEQUENTIAL WEEK OF DEVELOPMENTS.
